After watching Carolina's offense struggle early while looking elsewhere last week, expect Olsen to be a huge part of the plan vs Sea (who have allowed a league high 8 TDs to TEs).
 
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Olsen has a fantastic matchup against a Seahawks D that allows the 3rd most points to fantasy tight ends.
Denver is just 16th against fantasy tight ends, I like Gates as a TE1 this week, even on the short rest.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Seattle not stopping TEs at all and he's pretty much all the Panthers have at times so expect at least a score.
